Tactical Traffic and Weapons Tips(Secure - Login Required)

A couple of months ago I took an officer safety class that has really helped me a lot, and I thought I would pass along this info to everyone. One of the first things we were shown was the new cache of weapons that had been confiscated from the street that look like everyday household items, most being guns. The two that really caught my eye were

  1. Bic Lighter Gun
    This gun looks exactly like a small bic lighter that people carry all of the time. It fires a single shot, and I could not really tell the difference between the gun and the real thing.
  2. Wallet Gun
    This gun is carried in the suspect’s pocket and is a 25 cal gun. It has the gun inside of the wallet. A hole is cut in the center of the wallet for the trigger. The person is able to pull the trigger without opening the wallet.
